Saturday Statute Statute

Saturday Statute Statute
In classical ballet, everything is documented (written down), and there is a rule (statute) for everything. That’s wonderful. It means that no matter what step or set of steps a student has a question about, it can be looked up and  verified, clarified or disproven. Or, oftentimes, debated.
The problem today is that the internet is filled with websites about ballet, and some are better than others. Therefore, when researching a particular balletic subject it is always best to consult many different sources. This is true for everything, not just ballet.
Not only can you find written references regarding technique, you can find videos demonstrating exactly how steps should be performed. Again, some are better than others, and some are truly admirable and even amazing.
Research some items – it’s fun! 

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Statute #54:
“In ballet technique, there is a rule (statute) for everything.”
